Plans to transform old doctor's surgery into holiday let business

An old doctor's surgery could be transformed into a private house and holiday let.

Whitehall, Pontesbury

Whitehall and the Old Surgery cottage in Pontesbury was historically used as a doctor’s surgery.

Now a planning application has been submitted to Shropshire Council.

It is proposed for Whitehall, the main house, to become a holiday let, with both internal and external space to be used by the guests.

The Old Surgery Cottage - the previous annex - will be used as a residence for the family, with facilities for a private outdoor garden accessed through a proposed Georgian style extension with facilities for parking at the rear of the property.

The Old barn, the disused doctor's surgery would become further accommodation/annex residence for the family, with the possibility of being let out as additional space for the holiday let.

The modern interventions, the architects say, were designed to enhance the historic building fabric and not harm the heritage asset or setting.

Shropshire Council has also received a planning application the erection of 14 Dwellings with access onto Leigh Rd, the B4499, along with associated open land.
